Trivia

'Beyond Citizen Kane' was first shown in September 1993, on the UK's Channel 4. The programme was delayed for a year as 'Rede Globo' disputed the programme makers' right under British law to use short extracts from Globo programmes without permission for the purposes of "critical comment and review". During this period, Simon Hartog, the director, died after a long illness. The process of editing was taken over by his co-producer, John Ellis. When eventually broadcast, copies were made available at cost by the production company, and many were sent to Brazil by the Brazilian community in Britain. See more »

The Incredible Power of a Simple Documentary Over a Network
16 July 2009 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Simon Hartog's "Beyond Citizen Kane" is a remarkable and fascinating work that shows the dimension and the influence of Rede Globo in Brazilian's life (An influence larger than life). The documentary shows footages of the network in its greater moments and showing that behind all that glory and success lies a powerful company with tremendous power over people, including artists, politicians, and many others. Controversies enfolding the creation of the network, allies with the military regime during 20 years, false news and the infamous coverage of the presidential debate in 1989 are shown with the commentaries of several famous people, including ex-directors and reporters who have worked at Globo.

This documentary was going to be released on theaters here in Brazil but because of Globo's power it was banned from release after one exhibition to the press, back in 1994. Never was shown in television. The Brazilians could only see this picture when several copies were posted on the internet (Globo doesn't own the internet as far as I know).

The title it's a comparison between Charles Foster Kane (played by Orson Welles in "Citizen Kane") and Roberto Marinho president of Globo Corporation. Which is the same kind of power that both of these men held in their arms. Excellent film!
